How can you get a job at repossessing cars?

you need to contact lenders/banks to find out what their requirements are:trucks, insurance, etc. if your still interested make some calls to local guys and see if they are hiring. Unless you are trying to start your own repo company, calling lenders is not necessary. Try looking up "Repossession" in your local phone book and make some calls. Find out what the requirements are to work for them. Some states, like California, say that you have to have an individual license to do repossessions. To get that license you can't have a criminal record. It only takes a minute to make a call. Isn't that where the money is in starting your repo business?

If you move to Florida can you still get your car repo?

Yes. The repo company I work for goes out of state at least once a month to get a repo because the owners have moved, I don't believe any state will stop a repossession just because the car was moved to a different state.

Is there a place to find rules and regulations for repossessing vehicles in the state of Indiana?

If this is a contract sale of a motor vehicle, then Indiana Code 26-1-9.1-609 "Secured Party's right to take possession after default". In Indiana - self help repossession is permitted as long as there is no breach of the peace. WHOOPS - you want to be a repo man. There are no specific licenses for repo in Indiana. You'd have to check with your insurance company about bonding. The private detective field and repo field are closely related. You might check with the Indiana Secretary of State, Indiana Attorney General's office or you can call Indiana Professional Licensing Agency 317-234-3040 but that is mainly for PI work license.

How much money do you get paid for repossessing a car?

What are the consequences of voluntarily repossessing a car after having it for 6 months?

Credit will be ruined for 7 years. You will also pay the difference in what the lender sells the car for and the balance on the note, and possibly the repossession fees. Avoid this if at all possible. Talk to the lender and see if you can work this out.
